Kim Feenstra Controversy
Promotion of conspiracy theories
Due to her use of social media to disseminate disproved conspiracy theories, Feenstra has generated controversy. In 2020, she came to light for disseminating QAnon-inspired conspiracy theories.
Feenstra took part in a campaign against author Pim Lammers that was started by far-right activists in February 2023. For the Kinderboekenweek, an annual event to promote Dutch children’s literature, Lammers was supposed to compose a poem. Lammers published a piece of fiction in 2015 that was intended for adults and portrays how an adult guy grooms a little youngster.
A far-right activist used some of this language in an essay, calling Lammers a “gay activist” who preaches “fantasies about pedophile abuse.” Using this piece as evidence, Feenstra charged Lammers with “glorifying pedophilia” on social media. Lammers decided to withdraw from writing the poem after receiving death threats as a result of the campaign. Feenstra applauded Lammers’ choice to resign. Feenstra defended her belief in the disproved Pizzagate conspiracy theory in response to criticism.
